VULNERABILITY: Arbitrary File Upload

This exploit a file upload vulnerability found in Wolf CMS 0.8.2, and possibly prior. Attackers can abuse the upload feature in order to upload a malicious PHP file into the application with authenticated user, which results in arbitrary remote code execution.

The vulnerability was found on File Manager Function (Enabled by default), which provides interfaces to manage files from the administration.

In this simple example, there are no restrictions made regarding the type of files allowed for uploading. Therefore, an attacker can upload a PHP shell file with malicious code that can lead to full control of a victim server. Additionally, the uploaded file can be moved to the root directory, meaning that the attacker can access it through the Internet.

/wolf/plugins/file_manager/FileManagerController.php (LINE: 302-339)

// Clean filenames $filename = preg_replace('/ /', '', $_FILES['upload_file']['name']); $filename = preg_replace('/[^a-z0-9\-\.]/i', '', $filename);

    if (isset($_FILES)) {
        $file = $this->_upload_file($filename, FILES_DIR . '/' . $path . '/', $_FILES['upload_file']['tmp_name'], $overwrite);

        if ($file === false)
            Flash::set('error', __('File has not been uploaded!'));
